"Trouble xs 8," 7" x 16", is the final painting heading to ArtPrize. This piece is done in acrylics on panel, and will be available for purchase once the exhibition opens September 19th. Inquiries may come to me.
This is a rework of an earlier painting, "Great Expectations." While I loved the piece at the time I finished it, there were passages that just didn't quite work for me. So I set the piece aside to try and tackle later.
Here's a detail of the newly finished piece - it now boasts a more harmonious background, plenty of daubed color and gestural marks, and big ole paws and floppy ears.
Hoping everyone has a fantastic weekend! Ours will be full of more football, marching band, dance, and a little yardwork.

I've never been a huge sports fan (excluding a lifetime love of horse racing), despite growing up with four brothers. However, let me tell you, once my kids got on the field, it became a different story.
The Caped Crusader's passion is football, and this is the year he's been waiting for. He made the high school freshman team. Is playing on the turf. Under the lights. With concessions. And cheerleaders. And he's loving it.
Last night was their home game opener. The team played so well together, demonstrating solid sportsmanship and character. And The Crusader snagged an interception, running downfield for a TD!
No cape necessary.
